Painting Paneling - Do I need deglosser?


I'm getting ready to paint some paneling. I used fine grit sand paper and just lightly brushed over it. Then took a sponge mop and washed all the walls with very dilluted lysol.

Am I ready to prime? (Have Odorless Oil Based Kilz)

Or am I supposed to use a deglosser too?

Also, paneling in another room isn't shiny at all. Feels kind of rough to the touch. Not bad, but not smooth. Should I sand this too or just prime?

You should be good to go if you lightly sanded and cleaned well. I would also sand the rough paneling. Rough before will be rough after painting.

You pretty much "de-glossed" it during sanding
There's no need for a chemical de-glosser at this point

Definitely sand the rough panels too

Is my goal in sanding the rough paneling to make it smooth to the touch, or just scuff sand? Seems like lighlty sanding it in one spot just made it lighter in color, but not really smoother per see.

Also the other paneling I sanded still looks shiny. Does that matter?

Sand to degloss the smooth one, sand to smooth the rough one. The rough one may need a power tool such as a random orbital sander. 150 grit first pass. 220 grit for second pass.

Yeah you want to scuff it
You're not trying to remove the old finish, or make the surface smooth

You want to scuff sand that shiny, slippery, surface
Scuff it up
Help give the primer some 'tooth', something to hang on to, to help it adhere

I've painted many a paneled rooms. Some walls were very shiny, some were quit worn and dull. I used either a good oil-based primer or a heavy-duty latex primer (like SW pro-block). Both work well. Just keep in mind you will still need two topcoats. That's just the way it is, especially the first time around painting paneling.

What he said. Sanding paneling usually won't make it smooth.
